If archery lessons are something you’ve never even considered, consider this: There are a great many health benefits associated with archery. You might not think of archery as an intense sport, but it does require strength and endurance. It works the muscles in your arms, back, chest, and shoulders.

It’s also a great way to exercise your mind as well as your body.  Archery relies heavily on mental focus.  A clear mind is very important for an archer.  So if yoga’s not your thing, you might want to give it a shot!  It offers many of the same benefits, including increased strength, balance, and coordination.
